By Mehdi Sepahvand – Trend:

Iran has started seeking knowledge and expertise from a French company to tackle the emission of pollutants by cars.

Accordingly, the Industrial Development & Renovation Organization of Iran (IDRO) has recently engaged the French Institute of Petroleum (IFP) to reduce transportation-related air pollution, IDRO director of industrial investments Fardad Daliri said, SHANA news agency reported July 2.

The French Institute of Petroleum (IFP) is a public research organization in France founded in 1944 as Institute of Oil, Fuels and Lubricants. Its field of activity covers oil, gas, and vehicle engines.

According to the recent talks held with the IFP, they are going to provide Iran with their latest findings regarding how to reduce pollutants emitted by cars, Daliri said.

According to a national development plan that extends until 2025, Iran should meet the Euro-6 standard in cars by then.
